Hi, I think it’s my first thread on this forum, so I hope I will be able to explain myself right. (By the way english is not my first language… I’ll do my best).
What i’m looking for is a tool to be able to make 360° videos/movies/films/documentary shot with GoPro 360 rig (http://freedom360.us/shop/freedom360/); Elmo (http://freedom360.us/shop/elmo360/); or Sphericam (http://www.sphericam.com/).
I mean I prefer Unreal Engine (mainly because of Blueprints) than Unity (i’m not starting a war, it is just my personnal point of view, bias and comfort).
So I was wondering if one day it will be possible to do that.
I did an experimentation, like import a media in media framework, transform it in texture, put it in material that I put in a sphere and put a camera in the middle of it and check the HMD output. The problem was that for 4k videos it lag a lot, like it was impossible to watch.
Is there a better way to do that, is there a plug-in for more video projects? Does Epic is working to implement Google Cardboard SDK, or anything with 360 high res videos?
And at the end I want to be able to input sound spatialization, binaural sound, and UI and interactions in my movie. Like At the end of a take the user is in front of a choice to make to watch another take and it is make by a “gaze” cursor.
I want to do what that software is promissing and more, http://www.klynt.net/vr/.
Thank You all, the community and the people of Epic
